    Human Resources and Service Utilization of Older People Affected by Flood Disasters

    Soondool Chung | 김고은 | 2010, 6(4) | pp.1~16 | number of Cited : 3
    This study was intended to observe the human resources and service utilization of the elderly who affected by flood disaster and to find factors influencing resource utilization of them. A total of 204 elderly people aged 65 and over who were directly or indirectly damaged by flood disasters in Pyungchang, Inje, and Gangwon province of 2006 and in Goheung and Jeju island of 2007 were selected for the study. A survey research method was used to collect data. According to the study results, elderly people are more likely to use formal human resources than informal human resources. Although the elderly were utilized basic life supplies and medical care and medicine supplies, they would like to utilize more information for family safety, accurate information for the situation, and psychological stabilization in the future. The factors influencing informal human resource utilization were social support as a coping strategy, self-rated health status, income, period of residence. The factor influencing formal human resource utilization was avoidance as a coping strategy, income, living arrangement. For past service utilization, social support and avoidance as a coping strategy appeared as significant variables. For future service utilization, social support as a coping strategy and period of residence were found as significant variables. In conclusion, the characteristic of elderly people should be considered to take measures to provide services to the flood disaster victims.

    A Critical Review of the Trends Crisis Management Research in Korea

    백진숙 | 2010, 6(4) | pp.17~28 | number of Cited : 4
    Crisis management has been mainly handled in the perspective of journalism and public administration. However there has not been reviewed how crisis management research is characterized in spite of 30 years of study in the field. This study looked into theses published in the past 10 years, 2001~2010 in order to understand academic and practical trends. The features resulting from the research can be mentioned as below. Firstly, crisis management theses are more noticeable in specialized graduate schools rather than doctor’s degrees and mater’s degrees in general graduate schools. It means that participated researchers doing theoretical study with hands on experience have been increasing recently. This result shows well that there are lots of interests in crisis management and its practical application in each structure of the society. Secondly, quantitative study with statistical methods such as a survey, interview of experts, experimental research in crisis management is being on the increase. In the early stage of crisis management, qualitative study such as a content analysis, documentary research and case study was mostly carried out. On the other hand, systematic analysis with qualitative study and scientific research method has been recently done in this field. It certainly leads to bring a development of the crisis management research. Thirdly, the field of crisis management is very limited today. Journalism focuses on countermeasures on public, while public administration deals with crisis management system. However it is evident that crisis management is not still positioned as an independent study. Therefore, a fundamental basis of the diverse studies should be settled.

    Analysis of an Expectation-Disconfirmation on Budgetary Decision-making Process in Disaster Management of Local Government

    JuHo Lee | 2010, 6(4) | pp.29~46 | number of Cited : 8
    Previous researches on domestic local governments’ disaster management have focused on local governments’ roles, responsibilities, and organization reinforcement and divided disaster management into four stages – prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery. However, this study focused on disaster management budgets, in particular, the operation of local governments’ prevention budgets and problems in recovery budgets, and examined the development of existing theories on budgetary decision-making. Thus, focusing on what factors influence local governments’ such attitude, this study attempted to identify the factors through examining local governments’ expectation-disconfirmation. In this process, we regarded local governments’ bureaucrats in related organizations and their councils as major budgetary decision-makers, and tried to analyze how local governments’ expectation-disconfirmation on the use of prevention budget and recovery budget in disaster management affects budgetary decision-making in connection to the local governments’ budgeting. Lastly, based on these results, we made suggestions for improving local governments’ budgetary decision-making in disaster management.

    Governance for Risk Communication in Food Safety Regulation

    Dong-Won Kim | 2010, 6(4) | pp.239~254 | number of Cited : 4
    The purpose of this study is to design the governance model desirable for communication between government and citizens in food safety regulation. To do so, it compared Korea, Japan, and UK cases with a focus on a UK case, one of the most advanced models. In the process of the regulation, risk management as a policy function bases on the results of risk assessment as a research function. UK FSA attempts not only to draw the result of risk assessment on a scientific ground, but also to keep its organic links with policy outcomes. In particular, coordination works through the mechanism of risk communication, in which a diversity of stakeholder participate. It prevents the situation when negative social ripple effects, following policy outcomes, may spread due to the lack of trust.

    Park Dong Kyun | 조성제 | Soung Jea Hyen | 2010, 6(4) | pp.255~270 | number of Cited : 0
    Climate refugee began to appear due to climate change in the whole world. It seems that there will not be many countries that can offer more funds and places for protecting climate refugees, which occur owing to climate change. Under this background, this study examined a problem about climate refugee according to climate change. The task, which will need to be done preferentially to solve a problem about climate change, is what recognizes and accepts climate refugee by which each country of the world fixes up the domestic law. And, it is what makes the international convention system launched with a purport of sustainable progress by developing the Climate Change Convention in 1992. Finally, What is important given establishing policy for emergency management of climate change or climate refugee is how to respond to global warming, and to lack of resources according to it, to abnormal climate, and to a rise in disease. It is actually connected with social․political․economic factors that are buried in the base of climate change.
